Black & Yellow Schlapper Conehead

I tied these recently for a fly swap on These are excellent colour combinations for the spring on most rivers. This fly has a Silver Mylar body, Black Fox over Yellow Fox wing, Black Schlappen hackle over Yellow Schlappen hackle. I normally tie the mylar in long and secure it at the end of the tube this allows the back bit of mylar to fray and create spakle to the pattern. To order this fly or another flies on this site please email me by clicking here
